PRAISE FOR Sonya's Chickens

"There's an old-fashioned feel to this simple story and its timeless illustrations, created with watercolor, collage, and colored pencil and reminiscent of Goodnight Moon in mood, design, and palette. . . . A reassuring story about death in the natural world, thoughtfully designed and illustrated." --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

"This lesson of the interdependence among all living things in nature is gently told, accompanied by colorful watercolor and collage illustrations that show the multicultural family's life on a farm. . . . The story presents the circle of life in a very comforting but realistic manner." --Starred Review, School Library Journal

"The book combines the different emotions of joy, caring, passion, compassion and sadness in a most wonderful and simple way for a young child to grasp and appreciate. The flow of the story is captivating and the style would without doubt keep a child reading the text to the end." --The Deakin Review of Children's Literature

"The brilliantly colored artwork, produced in watercolor, collage, and colored pencil, is stunning. . . . The circled arms of her family mimic the embrace of the fox with his kits, emphasizing the oneness of the natural world's food chain in our interconnected world." --Booklist
